Reasons for Faith is a collection of writings from some of todays top apologists. It provides a rich resource for responding to why we believe what we believe. With insightful information from such writers as Josh McDowell, Norman Geisler, Sean Choi, and Richard Howe, to name just a few, readers can glean from several lifetimes of learning on such subjects as postmodernism, separation of church and state, The Da Vinci Code, modern cults, and the argument for intelligent design.
Mark Mittelberg, who authors chapter one, says, Apologetics, the study of reasons for our faith, is not for the mere accumulation of knowledge. Its to give us the information we need to lovingly serve and help people for whom Jesus died and whom He sent us to reach.
Apologetics is a witnessing vehiclenot a hammering tool. The more we know, and the more convinced we are in our own minds regarding what we believe, the better able we will be to truthfully and earnestly convey our beliefs to those who are searching for the hope we have found. We can never argue someone into salvationthats not the goal. The goal is to offer reasonable responses to the questions posed by todays seekers and agnostics.
I recommend this book to all teen and adult believers, and I challenge Christians of all ages to read and absorb what the writers of Reasons for Faith have to say. The book provides vital information and valuable insights regarding the Christian faith and ways Christians can respond to those who question the validity of God and His Word. Nancy K. Brown, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
